The Charlotte Buckeyes have supported Operation Buckeye since 2009. Since that organization recently closed their doors, we are partnering with Support Our Troops, a 501(c)(3) public purpose charity through which Americans strengthen the morale and well-being of their current military service members and their families. That includes sending care packages and letters!
S.O.T. relies on support from groups like the Charlotte Buckeyes. They provide simple ways for us to make a tangible difference through a variety of meaningful, substantive programs and services. This nationwide charitable resource stands as a living testament to the affection, gratitute and loyalty Americans hold for those who daily do so much to protect all of us.
For a month each football season, the Charlotte Buckeyes will collect $10 donations online or at any of our 3 gamewatch locations for care packages to support our soldiers. And as an incentive, the club receives a generous donation from Blackfinn - all participants will have chances to win 2 tickets to the season's biggest home game! (you know which one that is every other year!)
In 2019, the club raised $3000 for carepackages to be shipped overseas.

Operation Buckeye was one of the Community Service projects served by The Charlotte Buckeyes since 2009.
During those 10 years, the Charlotte Buckeyes sponsored 1099 soldiers, each receiving a care package and hand-written note from club members.
